I just noticed my commentor status declined. Didn't even get a message that I can fine advising me of such. In tooling around, I discovered this apparently occurs when one's participation in hubs declines. Oh, well, I'll have to scold real life and advise it to relent so I can have more Hubber time. Hmmm.
I wish they hadn't created that status. Commenting does NOTHING to help the commenter earn income on HubPages. A good comment may add a dash of fresh content to a Hub, but it doesn't contribute to the income of the Hubber.
So nobody should be made to feel bad if they're not commenting. Some people are social, some are not.
I think the only accolades I pay attention to at all is the one about how long I've been here, the one about how many featured Hubs I have at once and the one about how many times my Hubs have been read. I think they're more relevant to success.
I noticed that mine went down after I fixed some of my articles last week. The same thing happened to another person who updated their articles from Squidoo.
I'm trying to condition myself to view these aspects of HP as non-punitive. It's just that so many things in day-to-day living are just that - punitive. If my self esteem required that I excel at everything, I'd be a nut case.
Well that's new. What if I can't be here as often as I'd want to be? I mean, we all have work, families, and hobbies. -_- I can barely write any Hub lately.

So 1 hub which had a hub-score of 66 and this hubbers profile is on 92?Does anyone want to try...

so how do you feel about people who write hubs accept the comments and don't reply to them? I find myself doing that about 80% of the time because I run out of things to reply. also because I am a bit lazy. also because I wonder if you comment how you would know whether I reply or...

I did read the FAQ about the scores but in the past I thought I read that some other things that were factors for the hubber score were time spent in forums and asking/answering questions, commenting, etc. Is that true?

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?
